Beetroot, Horseradish and Potato Rosti

  1. Peel and grate the potato onto a cloth, season with a little salt and leave to stand for 2 minutes.

  6. Cook the Rosti until it is golden brown, turn-over and add the butter down the sides of the pan.
  7. Cook until the underside of the Rosti is golden, remove from the pan and drain well.

Smoked Salmon

  1. Remove smoked salmon from the packet and using a sharp knife remove the blood line at the base of the slice.
  2. Cut the lemon into wedges, remove the pips.

Poached Free-Range Eggs

  1. Fill a tall sauce pan with salted water and the vinegar and bring to the boil.
  2. Using a large spoon stir the water to create a vortex, break the eggs into the middle of the vortex and stir once more.
  3. Turn down the heat and gentle poach the egg until the white is cooked but the yolk is still runny, drain onto a cloth.

To Serve

  1. Place the Rosti onto a plate, top with the smoked salmon, then the poached egg and garnish with the lemon and Florette baby leaf.
